|Inner Middle Head Battery walk|
On this walk you will explore the historic northern or 'inner' Middle Head fortification battery. You can explore the trenches, tunnels and rooms of the fortifications on the less busy gun emplacements on Middle Head. The vegetation, water, cliff and harbour views are also spectacular and well worth spending a bit of time to carefully explore and soak up the sites. (open in app)
